About this book

The first up-to-date and comprehensive guide to the avifauna of this remarkable country. Starting with an overview of the natural habitats, Guide to the Birds of Madagascar then provides a general introduction to the avifauna. The endemic and endangered species are highlighted for each geographical region of the country, and seventeen prime observation sites are described. The main part of Guide to the Birds of Madagascar comprises a detailed guide to individual species. The information given for each covers description of adults and immatures, song, habitat, diet, nesting habits, distribution and status.

"A thorough and exciting field guide [...] It will prove invaluable to residents and visitors alike."
- Steve Zack, Yale University
